If you were hunkered down in front of your TV this weekend still trying to recover from NYFW, we’ll bet you probably tuned into Saturday Night Live to catch Sleigh Bells perform. If not, you missed our main girl Alexis Krauss singing her latest singles “Comeback Kid” and “End of the Line” from the Reign of Terror album released today—sporting the most amazeballs nail art we’ve ever seen. The high-fashion handiwork was done by none other than her go-to nail artist Ria Lopez, who we caught up with last month and showed off her killer art skills on Ms. Krauss herself. Alexis took the stage in two ripped T-shirt and jean ensembles complete with tons of studs, color, and overall badassness, so of course her nails needed to match. It was hard to see exactly what Alexis was sporting on her tips from far away, so we got an up-close-and-personal look at her nail art, and whew boy—it did not disappoint!

Ria hand painted a hodgepodge of fun, edgy tips for Alexis’ SNL debut. She started with color-blocked teal and baby blue polish covered in neon leopard spots next to a glittery silver-pink base decorated with hot pink swirls and zig-zags. On a more detailed design, Ria divided the nail in half with multicolored triangles on one side and straight-up geometric black designs on the other. She topped the nail design off with three silver studs per finger, which we love. On the ring finger, she stuck with a jet black glossy base covered with a giant studded cross. Ria pulled the entire mani together with more leopard print at the pinkies for an all-out AMAZING nail art design. To see the tips in action, watch Alexis’ SNL performances below!
